Recycled Art – Whimsical animal sculptures by John V. Wilhelm

John V. Wilhelm is a prolific self-taught artist who works in acrylic, pencil, ink and scratchboard etchings, but most often in sculptures crafted from steel and stone. Cattle made from river rock, railroad spikes, railroad track, steel wire, and nuts.
As a native Arizonan, John’s artworks often depict the heritage, landscapes and animals of the region. These sculptures are frequently whimsical animal figures incorporating natural rock and rusty steel and are extremely durable as outdoor art. Thanks to the nature of the materials used, no two pieces are identical and every piece has a unique character which can rarely be duplicated. The techniques employed to build these pieces range from traditional blacksmith methods to modern welding practices.
